Our objectiveThe objective of this project is to develop and validate an integrated, state-of-the-art, high-fidelity multi-scale modeling system for the accurate and efficient prediction of urban flow and dispersion of CBRN materials. Development of this proposed multi-scale modeling system will provide the real-time modeling and simulation tool to predict injuries, casualties, and contamination and to make relevant decisions (based on the strongest technical and scientific foundations) to minimize the consequences based on a pre-determined decision making framework. Prototype to be ready in early 2007
The project partnersEnvironment Canada Meteorological Service of CanadaCanadian Meteorological Centre (Michel Jean/Richard Hogue et al.) + MSC Quebec RegionAtmospheric and Climate Sciences Directorate (Gilbert Brunet et al.)DRDC Suffield (Eugene Yee et al.)HC RPB (Kurt Ungar et al.)AECL (Phil Davis et al.)University of Waterloo (F.S. Lien et al.)University of Alberta (J.D. Wilson et al.)Builds on on-going A-Base activities as well as on other CRTI projects
Component 1: Development and implementation of urban flow models to predict mean flow and turbulence at urban microscale (building/street scale to neighborhood scale)
Component 2:Inclusion of the effects of urban terrain in the sub-grid scales of GEM-LAM through urban parametrization : urbanized mesoscale model
Component 3:Coupling the urban microscale flow model to the urbanized mesoscale model
Component 4: Lagrangian Stochastic (LS) model for the prediction of urban dispersion of CBRN agens. Will use mean flow and turbulence predicted by the multi-scale flow model.
Component 5:Verification and validationProject components
